Microsoft Dynamics 365 2024 Release Wave 1 plan for Business Central

Microsoft just released the plans for the next major release wave.  I’m not going to explain what they mean with “waves” anymore – I did that in length in one of my previous posts (Microsoft Dynamics 365 2023 Release Wave 2 plan for Business Central (waldo.be)).  Spoiler: not a fan! 🤪 I have a hunch …

A BC Telemetry story … Monitor your Telemetry Usages!

I recently had a very scary thing happening on our Telemetry setup, that I would have never expected, and was glad I was able to catch it in time. TL;DR Any extra action on your Business Central environment can cause an explosion of telemetry signals, which possibly turns into an insane Azure bill.  Therefore, it’s …

My Directions EMEA 2023

Directions EMEA 2023 is just around the corner, and I’m looking very much forward to it!  And so should you! ;-). Since last year in Hamburg – which was clearly the best edition of all – they have set high expectations.  At least for me ;-).  It was the first edition to have “deep dive” …

Business Central vNext (v23) – The “new data model”

Analyzing Deadlocks in Business Central with Telemetry

Not too long ago, I was (and still am) challenged with analyzing deadlocks at a specific customer.  And in all honesty – that was not easy, because, you know, deadlocks is something on SQL – and it’s not like we have a lot of access to SQL tools. What are deadlocks? I’m not going to …

Microsoft Dynamics 365 2023 Release Wave 2 plan for Business Central

It’s that time again: the plan for the next wave is there!  Erik Hougaard already covered the plan – and in good habit – I’ll do the same in blog-form (I still hate making videos – or getting content from watching them – I’m clearly getting too old ;-)). I’ll do as I always do: …

BCTechDays 2023 – Final thoughts

BCTechDays is over, and it’s time for an (almost) traditional BCTechDays aftermath :-). A short one this time .. What an edition is was again 😱. Too bad I simply had to spend all the time I could find to prep for my own session with Vjeko. But more on that later. This year, it …

And while doing so, quite some new ideas came to mind that I’d like to investigate by means of Telemetry. But first, a disclaimer I’m absolutly not an expert. Probably there are better ways …

Just a small heads-up that made us scratch our heads for a while.. . In the new version of Business Central (2023 Release Wave 1 – aka v22), the PowerShell CmdLet “Get-NAVAppInfo” now gives one more dependency in the “dependencies” collection. Or as pictures say more than a thousand words: V21 and below: But from …
